Open Hiring™ Generates Community Housing and Economic Development
Issan House is our 35-unit supportive care housing facility for formerly homeless people living with HIV/AIDS, 95% of whom have also been diagnosed with mental illness and drug/ alcohol addiction. Issan is the only facility of its kind in Westchester County. Each year, forty to fifty tenants are provided with an array of specialized services that include wraparound case management, counseling, benefits assistance, life skills training, advocacy, appointment escorts, referrals to other services, and three nutritious meals daily. Individuals in Issan House have a permanent home and access to ongoing services while striving toward personal self-sufficiency.
In the mid-1980s, Greyston pioneered the concept of affordable permanent housing for homeless individuals, combined with on-site tenant services. As the revitalization of our Yonkers community had continued since then, Greyston continues to provide low and moderate-income families with opportunities to remain in the community.
